Students on the William & Mary Goa summer program spend five weeks exploring globalization and development in India. Indian faculty and W&M faculty teach courses on the program, and all students earn 7 credits. The focus of the courses will be globalization, development, and religious identity. Grades will appear on students’ W&M transcripts, and will be included in GPA calculations.

Goa still exhibits the cultural influences of the Portuguese, who first landed in the early 16th century as merchants. The Portuguese overseas territory of Portuguese India existed for about 450 years, until it was annexed by India in 1961. Renowned for its beaches, places of worship and world heritage architecture, Goa is visited by large numbers of international and domestic tourists each year. It also has rich flora and fauna, owing to its location on the Western Ghats region, which is classified as a biodiversity hotspot.

All meals are provided on-site (included in the program fee). Excursions may include Bangalore, the “Silicon Valley” of India, and an organic coffee plantation. Course-related excursions to the spice plantations and points of interest around Goa will enhance the student’s understanding of the economic and cultural background of the region.

Students will take 2 courses for 3 credits each from experienced faculty. Courses include: Globalization & International Development (SOC 313) which will satisfy the GER 4B requirement and Religious Identity in Goa: Colonialism, Nationalism, Hybridity (RELG 308) which will satisfy the GER 7 requirement.

Reves Summer Scholarships are available.



The Reves Center advisor for the Goa summer program is Molly DeStafney, mldestafney@wm.edu.
